Today I’m talking on bonjourbabette about a special item: the culottes. The culottes is a wide pants with a loose fit, combined with cropped ankles. I think it’s a really cool item, definitely for autumn, but it’s not easy to wear or to combine it. That’s why I want to show you some nice pairs, tips and tricks and my own outfit with my striped culottes. Have a look!
Tips and tricks how to wear culottes:
x If you’re not so tall (like me) it’s better to choose a shorter pair of pants. If you’re wearing pointy heels underneath, it makes you look taller. If you’re already taller, than you can even wear flats underneath with a longer pair of culottes.
x A short, tight jacket is the best combination with this type of pants. Your upper body will look more small. A leather jacket is a perfect solution. A white blouse or a cropped white top are basic but good to combine with culottes. The most important thing is: emphasize your waist!
x To give your outfit a casual-cool look, you can combine your culottes with sneakers, like I do in my outfit underneath. A sandal or pointy heels are a good solution to keep it more classy.
x If you don’t feel too comfortable in culottes, you can wear a high-waisted type of pants or you can wear culottes in black. If you want to experiment, you can try different styles of culottes like denim, pleats, stripes, textiles or prints.
